Ijahdan Taurus’ deep melodic voice guides the listener to an inner peace, where his words get real. The production has a 90s touch from both coasts and has influences from the Wu Tang Clan, A tribe called quest or Gangstarr.

“All good things take time” chants the chorus of this hypnotic Hip-Hop tune. It is the first single release from the forthcoming album #MYRHH (My Realest Hip-Hop) by vocalist Ijahdan Taurus and producer Echo Lair. Ijahdans soothing voice goes perfectly with the pleasant percussive melody and zen vibes of the beat. The boom-bap snare will take you back to the west side and reminds of an Eastsidaz, WC, Dpg, Xzibit type song. All good things take time is no lie! As we travel thru space and time, living our live(s), this indefinite and continuous process in which we manifest our deeds and see changes occur, is nothing else but time.

Go Get It pays homage to the early hip-hop pioneers and takes you back to a time, when Will Smith was the fresh Prince of Bel-Air. If it weren’t for the occasional lyrical references to hashtags or Kanye songs, one might think this song came out in the early 90s. A hypnotic beat of Zen bowls and kicking drums will beam you back into that time. Go Get It is an ode to youthful optimism. With lyrics like “Me, yo, who knows what I’ll become soon in the future, word to Confucius, if you’ve got a gift then you better let it use you”, the song makes you feel like you are that wild young one again.
“Move It.” The title says it all for this uptempo track that will have you moving from the moment the bongos and brass instruments strike on the Brazilian rhythmic beat. . “Move It” is a breath of positivity, good energy, and a modern hit that you won’t want to miss out on.

Rasta Song is an upbeat, yet groovy, roots reggae tune by producer Echo Lair in cooperation with Soundcloud legend Sennid as singer and lyricist. The track shows subtle signs of Echo Lair’s earlier foray into dub and drum & bass as well as hints to electronic music. Rastafarian reggae singer Sennid provides the melodic vocals, that often dip into a deep, raspy range and would not sound misplaced on a Shaggy album. It works remarkably well on this reggae track.
